'His writing extends the reader in the direction of selfhood – that quality that constitutes one's individuality – and reminds us of the limitations of everyday consciousness, but also of how it may be expanded to satisfy the deepest callings of human need.

Geoff Ward, Suite 101
'I would recommend Glossing the Spoils to anyone with an interest in Western European mythology, poetry and / or the Bardic Tradition.' Lorna Smithers
